bringing friends who are paying. >> b.a.r.t. already gives out 500,000 free weekend tickets a year, one proposal is to double that number to 1 million. tell us what you think about b.a.r.t., what your experiences are, use #dearbart with your stories on twitter and facebook. a new development in a hit and run crash in san francisco's mission district. police have now arrested the driver. he's 62-year-old stefan kernan. he's charged with hit and run and running a red light. three pedestrians were hurt in wednesday afternoon's crash at 23rd and mission streets. two of them are still in critical condition. police say that dui is not a factor in the crash. four people arrested in the west oakland moms for housing eviction in january will not face charges. this is according to the alameda county district attorney's office. the four were taken into custody by sheriffs deputies during the eviction. a lawyer for the four told the
